Jets open home stand with tough loss to Penguins

Perreault, Scheifele score as Jets split season series with Pittsburgh

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - A three-game win streak came to an end for the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night, as they dropped a 7-2 decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins to close out the season series between the two clubs.

Mathieu Perreault and Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets, who were playing their seventh game in 11 days to open the season.  

But while the Jets will certainly watch video on certain aspects of this loss, captain Blake Wheeler said the team will move on from it quickly.

"It's an outlier. I don't think that's indicative of our team," said Wheeler. "We've been behind a fair bit this year. But we've stayed in the battle. We've fought all year. Every once in a while it's going to look like that."

Thomas' Five Storylines - PIT @ WPG

Jets play the first of five straight games at Bell MTS Place

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / Winnipeg Jets

START OF A HOME STAND

The Jets have played five of their first six games on the road and now starting tonight they will play five straight at Bell MTS Place. Winnipeg is 1-0 at home thanks to that 5-2 effort against the Minnesota Wild on Thursday. Not including the Tim Horton's Heritage Classic in Regina (which is technically a home game) the Jets will play nine of their next 12 on home ice. This is a great chance for the team to put up some points early on to help them in a competitive Central Division.

Thomas' Five Storylines - WPG @ CHI

Winnipeg has won six of their last seven against Chicago

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / Winnipeg Jets

KEEPING CHANCES AGAINST DOWN

In the Jets back-to-back wins over Pittsburgh and Minnesota they gave up 38 and 40 shots, respectively. They were helped by Connor Hellebuyck who has been sensational in his last two starts. Head coach Paul Maurice said on Friday that the Jets are giving up way more (chances) than they want to but he is happy with his current seven defenceman on the roster (Morrissey, Kulikov, Dahlstrom, Bitetto, Poolman, Pionk and Heinola). Maurice feels they are generating enough at the offensive end of the rink but it's in their own end where they have to get better.

Practice Day Notebook: Break-outs, power play, and divisional opponents

Jets practice for 30 minutes before flying to Chicago

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - A quick 30-minute practice was all the Winnipeg Jets needed on Friday before they headed to a snowy airport to head to Chicago.

Every player that had a piece of the 5-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday was on the ice for practice, including Bryan Little, who remains in a non-contact jersey.

The Jets liked a lot of what they did in last night's win, which improved their record to 3-2-0 on the season.

"The crowd was great from the start. It was a blast playing in a home opener like this," said Mason Appleton. "We were pretty resilient and found a way to get the win."
